As one of the pioneers of jazz-rock-perhaps the pioneer in the ears of some (he's known to many as the Godfather of Fusion) Coryell deserves a special place in the history books. He brought what amounted to a nearly alien sensibility to jazz electric guitar playing in the 1960s, a hard-edged, cutting tone, phrasing and note-bending that owed as much to blues, rock and even country as it did to earlier, smoother bop influences.

Yet as a true eclectic, armed with a brilliant technique, he was comfortable in almost every style, covering almost every base from the most decibel-heavy, distortion-laden electric work to the most delicate, soothing, intricate lines on acoustic guitar.

Legendary Jazz Guitarist Larry Coryell, 'Godfather of Fusion,' Dies at 73

Known as the "Godfather of Fusion," Coryell was a pioneer of jazz-rock. He made his mark in the music world with his highly acclaimed solo work, releasing more than 60 solo albums in his lifetime.

In the mid-to-late Sixties, Coryell broke down genre barriers with his eclectic, fluid playing and experiments with melding plodding rock rhythms with spacious jazz chords. His breakthrough, 1969's Spaces, featured a who's who of the nascent fusion genre's innovators, including guitarist John McLaughlin, pianist Chick Corea and drummer Billy Cobham - all of whom would play on Miles Davis' landmark 1970 fusion LP Bitches Brew.

Der Virtuose

Er hat den Jazzrock mit erfunden, und schneller war kaum ein Gitarrist: Larry Coryell, auch als "weißer Hendrix" gefeiert, ist in New York gestorben.
